Before using heme iron polypeptide, tell your pharmacist or doctor if you are using methyldopa or other iron-containing products. Iron supplements can decrease the absorption of drugs such as tetracycline antibiotics, penicillamine, cefdinir, chloramphenicol, levothyroxine, levodopa, and quinolone antibiotics; therefore, doses of these medications should be spaced as far as possible. This product may interfere with certain laboratory results; make sure laboratory personnel and all doctors know you are taking this product. This product should not be used if you have certain medical conditions. Individuals that are pregnant, breast-feeding, or have hemochromatosis, other types of anemia, repeated blood transfusions, or stomach/intestinal problems should tell their pharmacist or doctor before using this product.

    Keep out of reach of children. Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children younger than 6 years. If accidental overdose occurs, call a doctor or poison centre immediately.
